imageA pair of wedge-tailed eagles have successfully reared a fledgling  this season. In this photograph you can see that the chick is nearly fully grown .  Fluffy down feathers can still be seen on its legs but the bird appears close to leaving  the substantial  nest made of sticks and fresh gum leaves  in an old grey box tree. Thanks  to  Leslie for sharing this lovely photo . It  makes me very happy to know  that these  iconic  birds of prey continue to successfully breed in our area. Photo by Val La May.
